About Melissa Jacques

I have visited the Algarve since I was a little girl when my parents fell in love with the rustic nature of the country and friendly people of the Algarve.

Having spent many holidays there my parents finally bought this land and built the villa in the '80's.

Over the years we have all spent many happy holidays and long weekends around the pool or on the beach which is a short drive away.

As the property is mainly used as a second family home it is kept to a high standard for those that wish to rent it - we do this to cover some of our costs of keeping the place in the family.

I now look after the upkeep and lettings of the villa and would be very happy to assist you with any questions you have whilst considering your holiday.

We look forward to hearing from you & welcoming you to our

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stunning villa, poolside and gardens

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and homely villa. Superbly equipped and very clean and tidy. The poolside is beautiful with ample seating around the pool or under the veranda. Perfect shady spot under the veranda for outside eating and drinking. Stunning views from the veranda and poolside across the hilly valley. There is a guest information pack, which gives some really good suggestions for local eateries and things to do - we ate in a different suggested restaurant every night and they were all brilliant. Would highly recommend Casa Farroba to other friends and family without a doubt. Enjoy your stay if you book!

Beautiful setting with superb swimming pool

For Annie and myself this is one of our most relaxing holidays we go on, the house and pool are just out of this world and we have a great time, with a fantastic choice of restaurants close by.

On arrival the house as per usual was spotless

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic and spacious villa for a family holiday. With its 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms it allows families to enjoy all comfort. Walking from your bedroom directly onto the terrace with a magnificant view on the mountains. The pool is great fun. From the sunbeds around the pool, we as parents could observe what the childeren were doing. The accomodation is only a few minutes drive from the nice village and the beaches are reachable within half an hour. Great place !

An absolute gem

  • 5 of 5

I’ve visited this stunning villa twice and it’s an absolute gem. Perfect location in an ideal setting with breathtaking views over the valley, but five minutes from the local Intermarche. The accommodation is spotless, truly home from home with everything you need, plus a fantastic upper terrace above the pool - great for leisurely breakfasts or alfresco suppers. A little piece of paradise.
